Using evidence from psychology, anthropology, sociology and other scientific disciplines, this book shows that:
• There are at least three biological races (subspecies) of man - - Orientals (i.e., Mongoloids or Asians), - Blacks (i.e., Negroids or Africans), and - Whites (i.e., Caucasoids or Europeans).
• There are recognizable profiles for the three major racial groups on - - brain size, - intelligence, - personality and temperament, - sexual behavior, and - rates of fertility, maturation, and longevity.
• The profiles reveal that, ON AVERAGE - - Orientals and their descendants around the world fall at one end of the continuum, - Blacks and their descendants around the world fall at the other end of the continuum, - Whites regularly fall in between.
• This worldwide pattern implies evolutionary and genetic, rather than purely social, political, economic, or cultural, causes.
